Japanese Sony Tablet P to receive Ice Cream Sandwich in April
Sony's dual-screen Tablet P has been a specialty of sorts at Pocketables. We've brought you a couple of great guides on how to root your tablet and fix its battery issue. The one thing we haven't been able to give you is an official build of ICS for the device.
Luckily, we have Sony to do that. Starting in April in Japan, the manufacturer will begin to push out Android 4.0.3 to the dual-screen tablet. The downside to the news is that we still have no idea when the software will make its way through the copper and fiber cables of the US and into the devices that reside there, but I'd guess that it won't be too long after the Japanese update.
If you've ever seen or used a Tablet P, you know that the UI changes are relatively minor. In fact, Sony hardly even touches the operating system aside from making it compatible with the dual-screen setup. In this case, I can accept the fact that this ICS update is a little late; however, I'd still like to see Google be a little more strict on the timeliness of updates.
